MathAlive! Powered by Raytheon to Debut at Smithsonian
Raytheon will unveil MathAlive!, an interactive experience designed to bring math to life for students and visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
As the next major step in the company's commitment to math and science education, Raytheon will debut MathAlive! at the Smithsonian's International Gallery in Washington, D.C., in early March 2012. Following a three-month run at the Smithsonian, MathAlive! will go on a Raytheon-sponsored multiyear tour of science centers and museums across the country.
